So Peyton Manning is running offense from Pistol formation. Are we FINALLY clear on difference between Pistol and zone read, America?

TEXAN RBS SET TO BATTLE IT OUT AGAINST VIKINGS

Quote:
If Arian Foster never plays a single preseason game for the rest of his career, I won't care. Tight back? Don't sweat it, Arian ... just get your rest. Calf sore? No problem, Arian ... just take a few days off. Did you get a bad edge-up? No problem. Sit it this week out and let that sh*t grow back right.

What I'm saying is that I don't find too much value in preseason games for RBs. Sure, I think there is some value in Foster being available for practice when he's healthy, but that is much different from taking reps during a meaningless preseason game.

With Foster out for at least the Vikings game, I'll give you a primer on who will be running the ball for the Houston Texans and what to look for.

BEN TATE - #44

5'11", 214 LBS.


This is a big camp and big season...

DENNIS JOHNSON - #28

5'7", 196 LBS.


While the more heralded...

CIERRE WOOD - #41

5'11", 213 LBS.


He's almost identical in size to Tate, but...

DEJI KARIM - #39

5'8", 209 LBS.


Karim just...

RAY GRAHAM - #37

5'9", 199 LBS.


I wish that...

FULL GAME REPORT: HOUSTON TEXANS VS. MINNESOTA VIKINGS, PRESEASON GAME 1

Quote:
You know who had a really good game? Case Keenum, that's who. You know who had a really, really, really bad game? Channel 13 (KTRK), that's who. The home of Houston Texans preseason games, KTRK, suffered from a faulty upload link in one of the onsite trucks in Minneapolis for extended parts of the game, including the entire halftime. Anyone trying to watch their feed was treated with a "Technical Difficulties" graphic and in-game audio that sounded like a radio broadcast from a 1940s' baseball game.


Channel 13 KTRK previews next week's broadcast

The good news for current QB3 Keenum was that the difficulties were mostly corrected in time for Houston Texans fans to see him put together a solid performance that will further strengthen cries for Keenum to get a legitimate shot to compete with T.J. Yates for the backup QB spot.

Okay, let's tell the truth on this game now.

OFFENSE...

WADE SMITH IS OUT, POSEY MIGHT BE IN AND NATE MENKIN RETURNS

By Lance Zierlein

Quote:
...
Gary Kubiak has a tendency to drift between great worry about players not being out on the field and seemingly small concerns about players who are injured. What I've found is that if you are nicked up and Kubiak thinks you can fight through it, then he will talk about how (insert player here) is missing valuable reps and getting too far behind.

If a player is legitimately injured, he will start talking about how (insert player here) is coming along great and Kap (trainer Geoff Kaplan) continues to monitor the situation and that (Kubiak) is happy with how things are progressing...

RE-WATCHING THE FIRST HALF OF THE TEXANS VS. SAINTS PRESEASON GAME

August 27, 2013


FIRST QUARTER

OFFENSE

2nd and 2: 14:18

Out of the shotgun, Matt Schaub looks left at Owen Daniels who is heading towards the flat and sees that LB isn't following Daniels in man coverage but is instead in zone coverage. Schaub turns his attention to Andre Johnson who is open in the middle of the field and in the middle of the zone coverage. Every pass play has contingencies for zone and man coverage and this is a great example of a...

Yessir, I've been re-watching and comparing LZ's notes! Alas, it's getting late and so I'll probably have to do Lance's second half tomorrow night.
